I went to one in the St. Peter Stiftskeller. They had a small group of musicians in period dress. There was music and singing before the meal and between every course, and the performers were very good. The setting was very nice. There was one menu which you could see ahead of time online. I don't remember the exact timing, but I think it lasted a couple of hours. This place is located in old town, and there is not public transportation directly around it. You can walk maybe a few blocks to get to the bus line. This is the website: http://stpeter-stiftskeller.at/en/mozart-dinner.html

Hi.

Sometimes, it is a bit difficult to give solid advice or suggestions with open-ended questions without your giving more detail to those who have been to Austria to possibly help.

When are your travel dates? What are your main interests? - Art? Museums? Sampling fancy cuisine? Eating your way through all kinds of sweets? < (kidding) Wandering around towns? Cities? What engages you to go to a country? What is your travel budget? It is better if you can be more travel-specific.

Here is a start: Maybe read the itinerary format to Rick Steves' tour inclusive of Austria - there are two - one is more structured as opposed to the "My Way" which has guidelines but more independence and maybe more freedom to roam.

http://www.ricksteves.com/tours/germany-austria-switzerland/my-way-germany-austria-switzerland

I am not suggesting you take either of these tours, but it may give you more insight and more of a 'base' as to what you are interested in. You expressed you are not that much into music. So there may be other attractions you would favor spending time at.

Check out and read up on other tour companies who go to Austria and see their itinerary to help guide you in your planning. Jot down some of your interests; then see how you can put that plan into action, together with yourself and the help of travellers here.

Also, another suggestion is to get a hold of a copy of "Europe Through The Back Door" or a guide book specific to Austria. It does not have to be a Rick Steves one; you can compare and take notes from the copies you may secure at a book store or your library.

After you get a feeling for your express interests, then you can be more specific in your questions which will result in more specific answers.

Also, some people may find it a bit hard to decipher the shortened words (seems some are almost in a texting, abbreviated format.) It might be more helpful, to those reading your post, for you to actually spell out the full word(s).

Good luck.

I could not make head nor tail of the OP's post so I gave up trying.

If you aren't music lovers at home, I do not understand why you would attend a concert during your holidays. Personally, I would advice the Marionettentheater, whose shows are visually very appealing.

"Thank you soooo very much for your input about Austria.will definitely check out those websites."

You are welcome. I have not been to Austria, but, gathered some links that you may want to check out to get some ideas and a feel for Austria and what it has to offer. Check out the links below.

As a suggestion, just because some people "rave" about the Mozart dinner concert; if the music or atmosphere surrounding it does not appeal to you, then you should not do it against your will. See, experience and explore what you like :)

Check out Trip Advisor too. Maybe some can help there.

With all the links I provided, the suggested RS tour itineraries to guide you a bit, the reference books, some help "here," you should be able to plan a lovely trip to Austria :) The fun is also in the planning.

UPDATE Check out this link too. Maybe some helpful info. http://www.ricksteves.com/europe/austria

Old Town, Altstadt, Salzburg is a place to stroll, shop, and enjoys cafes. I don't know that you will see fashionable Austrians strolling there. You will see as many or more tourists than Austrians. I probably wouldn't know fashionable Austrians (or any other fashionable people) if I saw them since that isn't my thing, so I can't tell you where to see them!

Altstadt and Austrian fashion. I don't recall seeing "fashionable Austrians" walking around but Altstadt had some traditional Austrian clothing shops with upscale priced clothing.

On Sunday you may see Austrians in their lederhosen and dirndls -- especially if it's a holiday. It's NOT just for the tourists!

"enjoy the sight of fashionable austrians just to get a feel of the place...." The relatively small Alstadat of Salzburg is usually over-run with tourists. If you really want to see this, head out to one of the newer districts, Vienna, Innsbruck or Graz. Or, one of the ski resorts in the winter.
